Before packing up, and heading for New Delhi, Krishnendu Chatterjee spent more than a decade with canvas, paints and brushes, letting his heart speak through colours. By then, the urge to create had become a frame of mind. Today, he is a master storyteller through his viewfinder.

Destroying exhibition by Krishnendu Chatterjee

Destroying is a photo-documentary series by photographer and story teller Krishnendu Chatterjee capturing poignant stories of ecological imbalances on lens. The collection of photographs is rooted in the artist’s response to the terrible predicament of Yamuna – one the most polluted Indian rivers, which ironically is also among its most revered water bodies.

The enduring truth about its continuity and nourishment of the capital city, bearing witness to changing times and countless generations, did not help the river escape the filth that it accumulates every day.

Festivities, ceremonies and processions of all kinds, along the river have become so commonplace that it is mistreated with religious and political legitimacy. And when this is coupled with the development narrative that fuels industrial activity and unrestrained consumption, no questions can be asked.

The artist exposes the duplicity where cultural practices and the philosophy of modern life exert tremendous pressure on the ecosystem .He locates some of these moments amounting to cutting off our critical lifeline, triggering honest introspection.

More than fifteen years of work experience in an advertising agency as its Art Director, had tremendous beneficiary effects on his photographic works. For Chatterjee, photography is like painting pictures with digital colours on the camera’s sensor.

He spends hours working on choosing his frames, to elevate his works offering various openings for the viewer to enter his narrative. He is particularly drawn to art and food photography. The artist lives and works from his studio in Delhi.

His exhibition at the Delhi O’ Delhi Foyer at the India Habitat Centre is on display from 1st – 30th November.
